Can I Use a Springform Pan in an Instant Pot?

If you’ve tried making cheesecake earlier, you know that springform pan is an absolute necessity. But you might be confused about whether or not you could use the pan in your instant pot.

Well, in general, springform pans are constructed using either of the three materials- stainless steel, anodized aluminium or food grade silicone, and all three of them are completely safe to be used in an instant pot

How Do I Know My Instant Pot Smores Cheesecake Recipe is Done?

Depending on the kind and amount of ingredients, the cooking time for your instant pot cheesecake can vary. Just stick to the cooking time as per the recipe you have, and that should suffice.

When your cook time ends, turn off the instant pot and allow the pressure to naturally release.

Can I Make Marshmallow Fluff Myself?

If you’re looking for a quick fix, store bought marshmallow fluff can be your best bet. But if you don’t mind making a teeny bit of extra effort and making it yourself, you can do that too. It’s actually pretty easy too. 

You’ll basically need to start by combining water, sugar and corn syrup and getting it to a temperature of around 240 degrees and on the side, beat some egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until they are nice and fluffy and form stiff peaks.

And finally, you need to drop in the hot sugar syrup into the eggs while mixing it continuously, and drop a couple of drops of vanilla essence into it. That’s it. 

Why Should I Let My Cheesecake Cool Down Before Refrigerating It?

Most cheesecake experts (and recipes) will tell you to first cool down your cheesecake, allow it to come to room temperature and then pop it into the refrigerator for a few hours before you go ahead and serve.

But why all that hassle- you might ask? Why not just remove it from the instant pot and get it into the refrigerator?

Well, the reason is simple. When you do that, it allows all the residual steam to escape, and there won’t be any condensation on the top of the cake when you remove it from the refrigerator to serve it.

Those of us who love cheesecakes know that there is a fine line between a good one and a not-so-good one. Here are some tips to help you prepare the perfect cheesecake.


  • When pouring the crust into the pan, make sure there is an even and consistent layer. Don't leave spaces unfilled.
  • Remember to always refrigerate the mold before adding the filling, this step will help make it consistent and crisp.
  • Although the traditional recipe uses cream cheese, you can also make it with goat cheese, some ripened variety, or even blue cheese. The imagination is the limit.
  • If the eggs are poorly scrambled, the taste will not be as pleasant. Mix them well, dedicate time and love to them. The more coats, the more integrated the flavors will be.
  • Use cheese at room temperature. If you use cold cheese, there will be cake crumbs that will not mix well with the egg.
